The joys of the server side

When you don't actually distribute the software you write, platform choice becomes that much simpler. A new Tucows blogging tool is written in Ruby and uses PostgreSQL as its database. Paul Graham wrote (parts of) Yahoo Store in Lisp. Neither Ruby, nor Lisp can claim to be "the established thing", but as everybody has been saying for a while, it just doesn't matter as long as you don't need to distribute the software. What a great chance to make things interesting.
